‘Just Work Like Hell’ Musk’s Old Video Suggesting 80-100 Hours Work Week Goes Viral; Internet Can’t Disagree More

What is a benchmark of success for boomer billionaires? Seeing your low-paid employees grind for as many hours a week as you rake in moolah. And of course, it’s all in the national interest. For the greater good of civilization. Yada yada. While closer home, Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy stirred the conversation with his contentious advice to youngsters: Thou shalt toil for 70 hours a week unto the glory of thine motherland. Across the Atlantic, another libertarian and evangelist of interplanetary and intergalactic capitalist utopia has a similar view. An old clip of Tesla boss Elon Musk’s rambling about hard work caught desi billionaire Harsh Goenka’s attention. In true WhatsApp uncle’s fashion, Goenka shared the same on social media. In the video Musk remarks

Just work like hell. I mean you just have to out in you know 80 hours, 80-100 hours every week. All those things improve the odds of success.

Musk further adds

If other people are putting in 40 hours a week and you’re putting in 100 hour work weeks, then even if you are doing the same thing, you will achieve in 4 months what it takes for the former a year.

Mr. Goenka remarks in wonderment if that is what it takes to become an Elon Musk!

Here’s how the netizens reacted to Harsh Goenka’s post:

Or maybe we need to emulate this gentleman with a penchant for bending his body and some more.

As long as billionaire capitalists keep on perpetuating, clapping for those who go hard on their organization to mint gold, we’ll continue to exist as slaves in corporate suites with occasional leaves to cherish. Is socialism any better though?
